First, you don't mention whether you are mounting using "cifs-vfs" or "smbfs". 
If you are using "smbfs", you may want to switch to "cifs-vfs".  To do this, 
specify "cifs" as the file system type when you run mount ("mount -t cifs") 
instead of "smb".

If using "cifs-vfs" does not solve the problem, you may want to upgrade your 
"cifs-vfs" kernel module as well as your version of Samba.  The easiest way is 
to use Red Hat's "up2date" utility.  Run it, and it will automatically update 
you to the current official Red Hat versions of "cifs-vfs" and Samba.
